A great ride today through some of Geelong’s laneways for 10 riders.
I think some people surprised themselves by being able to ride the somewhat rough and bumpy laneways. Always good to push oneself to a new challenge! There were no incidents, mechanicals, punctures etc.
Coffee stop at the end of the ride was at Ripples.
A big thankyou again to Gary for leading and his choice of route.
I had a very nice email from Rod a few days ago, expressing regrets that he couldn’t join the ride owing to other commitments. I reproduce it here with his permission:
I can’t make the ride on Sunday with regret, because this is a beauty.
You have moved into the next phase of growth of Cycling Geelong and its a mammoth move.
The essence of a real working city is its connectivity offerings and here you are exploring this
in our own locality. Kevin has been doing this on his Monday rides as well but yours is more fine grained as I see it now.
I applaud your planning and note how the ‘old’ Geelong Bicycle Plan suburbs are partly used so the ride has signifiant historic value as well.
Please circulate this email to all club members. Its a real win and offers alternatives for the future.
I would love to be involved with discussion of where to now.
Wonderful Dave, how lucky are we to have you aboard.
Thanks for the kind words Rod and here’s hoping that you can come along for Laneways V3.0 !!
